Research impact communications and consultancy

During 2012-2014 Scientia Scripta helped to shape the REF submissions of several UK universities. We worked with them to develop strategies and materials to tell the stories of how their research is changing the world. These narratives were submitted as impact case studies to REF2014.

From this experience, we now have the expertise to support your organisation as it embraces the so-called ‘impact agenda’. In particular, we want to help you communicate the impact of your research to stakeholders: government, businesses, students, the media and many more.

Universities have already done a huge amount of work to develop their REF impact case studies; why not use these stories straight away? Read our advice on eight easy ways to communicate your impact.
